Breaking Through Power
It's Easier Than We Think
Ralph Nader

Interview on WBUR's Radio Open Source

Normalize, Demonize, Mobilize: How Do You Respond to Donald Trump? 
The election of Donald J. Trump came as a thunderclap. This week, the echoes are still ringing in the ears of the American polity. Radio Open Source's Chris Lydon asks his panel of guests, "What to do now?"

Rockstar economist Yanis Varoufakis starts off with a rich, nuanced analysis of the current situation. In these benighted times, he makes out a silver lining in Trump’s astonishing rise to power. "It’s possible to go against the Establishment and win." Later, critical historians of thought and activism on the left Tim Barker and Donna Murch join the show, critiquing the Democratic Party’s checkered past and laying out a path for moving forward. National treasure of independent politics and author of Breaking Through Power: It’s Easier Than We Think, Ralph Nader, also helps us look for civic consensus across party lines.  Nader can be heard around minute 21.
